Private Counseling Retreats for Parents and Family Therapy Retreats

Private Counseling Retreat for Parents about Parenting

If you are looking for a marriage and family therapist, or a family therapist I can offer my guidance

through my training and years of experience in parenting counseling and marriage counseling,

to help  you understand where your disagreements as a couple translate into your parenting style that

creates problems for the child and your relationship with them.

Coverage of The Counseling Retreats

  • Parental Advice

A divorce, the passing of a family member, a bullying experience, difficulties at school, or relocation at a certain age can leave an inferior perception of the child's interpretation of Self or traumatic memories. You will leave the Private Counseling Retreat knowing how to navigate the problem, deal with the aftermath of it, and what healing means for you and your child.

  • Parenting Counseling

Retreating for parenting counseling helps if there is a repetitive trigger you want to understand in order to show a different reaction in stressful moments. It's a great counseling format for reflecting on emotions that bother you as a parent.

If you don't feel confident as a parent or have problems with your child's behavior, I encourage you to check out my Parenting Online Program.

  • You and Your Teenager

If you and your teenager fight a lot and feel you are about to lose the bond with them, the Private Counseling Retreat can help you both speak about your feelings and find agreements for moving forward, rebuild the trust, and reconnect.

  • Family Therapy Retreats

Going on a vacation to heal your family patterns is a great idea! The counseling, which takes place outdoors, makes this an approach that works very well for the whole family. The playful atmosphere and the activities that children enjoy are helping to make counseling a lighthearted experience.

Scuol, A Town with Healing Powers

Scuol, Switzerland Private Retreat Counseling with Matina Famos

The land on which Scuol was built has marvelous healing powers. Since 1864, the town has been hosting guests who come to be cured by drinking from the twenty natural carbonated mineral water. Some healing springs contain calcium and iron, while others have high quantities of sulfate, sodium, chloride, or magnesium. Several different types of mineral water with wonderful names, such as Lischana, Sotsass, or Chalzina, bubble from village fountains. The houses are built with the front to the wells because the souls of the deceased leave with the water flow.

The people speak Romansh, the fourth national language of Switzerland. Through their cultural values, village characteristics, and history, they present a very different Switzerland.
The largest town of the Lower Engadine is Scuol. Tarasp, with the famous castle, and Sent are the towns nearby, all located at the foot of the Swiss National Park.
Being too far for day-tripping tourism and the lack of interest from the locals in offering surplus tourist attractions has helped preserve nature.

In paradox to the water miracles, the Lower Enagine is an arid area spoiled with mostly sunny days and a perfect place for my walk and talk counseling in pristine nature.

The Scuol region has visitor packages to encourage visitors to come by train. Please find more information on the links below.

Tourist Information

You will wake up in a beautiful world wherever you stay overnight. I'm happy to help you with recommendations if you are unsure which hotel to choose.


The Mountain Rails

This link will give you information about summer and winter offers in the ski area.

The Bathing Area


At the Engadine Bath, you can immerse yourself in the warmth of the large indoor pool, relax in the indoor or outdoor jacuzzi, or drift on the saline bath's salty waters.​

Visit other culturally preserved towns like Ftan, Ardez, Tschlin, Guarda, or Lavin and gaze at the beauty of the houses and the wise verses written on the facades.

The words in the picture speak about the importance of not compromizing comforts of home because, for almost everybody, the path of life comes with hassles and prices.
